pharmachologic effect

Nimesulide has a pronounced effect on metabolism.
arachidonic acid, inhibiting mainly cyclooxygenase-2.
Owing to these processes, the biosynthesis of prostaglandins decreases,
mediators of inflammatory and allergic reactions, and
smooth muscle organs.

The drug quickly blocks the release of histamine from mast cells,
slows down the synthesis of metalloprotease, elastase and collagenase,
thus protecting the cartilage from destruction. Suppresses
release of tumor necrosis factor alpha, reducing the effect
kinin, causing expansion of the vascular wall. Reduces production
neutrophils of superoxide anions and the formation of free
radicals playing an important role in the development of inflammatory

Nimesil’s effectiveness develops rapidly and continues throughout
6 o’clock.

suspension the drug is rapidly absorbed through the digestive tract, reaching
maximum therapeutic concentration after 2-3 hours.
It is characterized by a high bond with blood proteins, up to 97.5%, easy
passes through histohematogenous barriers.

Metabolism of the drug occurs in the liver using P450 (CYP)
2C9: cytochrome isoenzyme. The main metabolite is hydroxynimesulide,
pharmacologically active nimesulide derivative. Displayed through
bile metabolized.

About 50% of the accepted amount of Nimesila is displayed
by the kidneys.
